In the first half of 2007, Swiss Life in Luxembourg increases premium income by 13% and its half-year result by 45% compared to the same period last year
In the first half of 2007, the premium income of Swiss Life in Luxembourg amounted to 171.1 million euros compared to 151.7 million euros for the first half of 2006: an increase of 13%. Be it in group insurance on the local market, solutions for expatriates and third country nationals or assurfinance (life insurance products for European high net worth individuals), all business activities contributed to this growth.

With a result for the first half of 2007 amounting to nearly 3.4 million euros in local standards, Swiss Life in Luxembourg achieved a big increase of its profit compared to the prior-year period (2.4 million euros).
This profit is mainly derived from the increase of the financial result thanks to higher realised gains compared to the same period last year, an improvement of the result on death and disability risks, and is achieved despite higher operating expenses, due to the increase of the assets under management and of the premiums.

The company continues to focus on the strategic priorities set by the Swiss Life Group: achieve sustainable and profitable growth and strengthen operational efficiency to increase profitability.
